Less than a week before his criminal trial is set to restart, Channel 12 reports that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is considering asking the Jerusalem District Court that he be excused from attending all 20 hearings slated to take place over the next month.

Hearings are scheduled to take place three times a week from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., and as of now Netanyahu is expected to be in attendance.
